Red Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Robert Andino, the Orioles' version of Aaron Boone, has been dealt to Seattle for Trayvon Robinson.
If you can't remember Andino's significance:

Worth mentioning: Andino isn't actually a Red Sox killer -- he has a .620 OPS against the team and shouldn't have even had that single land, considering Carl Crawford is allegedly an excellent athlete and defender.
In hindsight, watching this is much less painful. If Crawford makes the catch, the Red Sox get to the playoffs, and maybe the organization sticks with that group. Maybe they try to make Theo/Tito work, when it appears both were burned out on Boston. Maybe there isn't as much urgency to trade Adrian Gonzalez, Crawford, and Josh Beckett. Maybe we're still rolling out a bloated payroll of unlikeable players.
There's been speculation that the Sox could make a similarly minor move today, given that their 40-man roster must be set and they have a few players they still need to get on the roster.
